Two Gardens

April 18, 2019

The Garden of Eden— where God put Adam and Eve to enjoy the pleasure of life and commune with Him….Until the devil tempted Adam and Eve and SIN entered into the lives of all mankind. From that moment on “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” That gave mankind no hope of going to Heaven without some payment for sin.

The Garden of Gethsemane— where JESUS went to pray. 3 times He asked His Father to remove the cup of wrath He was about to drink, but each time He submitted to the Father’s will. He was “exceedingly sorrowful unto death,” In this garden Jesus surrendered his earthly life to die on the cross for the sins of mankind. Jesus sacrifice was payment for our sin if we accept Him as our Savior.

JESUS is God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Romans’ 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

There’s a Mouse in the House

January 9, 2019

A mouse is small and some people even think they are cute, however, if they find a way to get into the house they cause damage. They chew holes in fabric, get into food and can cause disease. They are smart. Set traps and they find a way to get around the trap. The only way to get rid of of this little creature is to find the place they enter, block the hole and then use poison to kill it. Not a pleasant experience, but very necessary to protect your home from damage.

Sin is like this small mouse. Sin finds a way to get into our lives using a small temptation. If left without getting rid of it, sin gets bigger and harder to get rid of. It damages our lives. Relationships are hurt, and our fellowship with God is ruined. The only way to get rid of sin is to block the source by confessing it and then kill it by repentance and asking Jesus to forgive. Then be diligent to not allow that sin to enter into our lives again.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

Are Your Sins Forgiven?

Our Adversary

August 25, 2018

The devil is after YOU. We must be aware at all times that he is trying to ruin our testimony. None of us are exempt from his wicked devises. He makes sin look good and we fall into his trap. Marriages failing, drinking, drugs, anxiety and many other seemingly innocent sins creep into our lives one small step at a time. We must resist the devil and he will flee. Let’s pray for one another, family, friends, coworkers and neighbors, that they and we, will be able to resist the devil.

Sin

July 10, 2018

Sin may be just a 3 letter word but if you carry it around long enough it will cause death.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Attitude

May 3, 2018

When we have a bad day how do we handle it? We can react in two ways. Get angry and have a temper tantrum and rage or stay calm and quiet. Situations can be frustrating but as Christians we must not be part of the problem with a bad attitude. If temper and bad disposition are one of our personally traits, let us ask the Lord to help us overcome our bad attitude starting today.

Colossians 3:8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.

Are You Clean?

Trying to Loose Weight?

August 30, 2017

Many of us are trying to loose weight. We diet, exercise, and try to stay away from food that will keep us from our goal. The Bible says we have weight that we need to get rid of and it is called sin. We need to decide to loose the “weight” of sin in our lives. Jesus said He is the bread of life. We must first trust Him to take away our sin. Then a good exercise is to read the Bible and pray everyday. Then put away anything that will keep sin in our lives. It may be wrong friends, or a bad habit, or going to places where we are tempted to pick up our sin again. Let us loose the weight we need to both physical and spiritual.

John 6:48  I am that bread of life. Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
